Manchester Ship Canal & Merseyside

2019 will marks the 125th anniversary of the opening of the Manchester Ship Canal with its 35 miles of industrial heritage through locks and bridges that are over 100 years old. A wonder of the Victorian Engineering.In many ways this tour is all about taking a step back in time in the NW England. An epic canal journey, a Victorian glasshouse, a wondrous village set apart for factory workers, the history of the dockyards and shipyards have all shaped the region as we know it today. Rich in architectural heritage, a particular highlight of the area is St. George’s Hall, a Neo Classical delight and key film location for the hit adaptation of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter prequel.
